WordPress Multisite Installation

What is a WordPress Multisite?

WordPress Multisite (also called Multiuser or Blognetwork) is a feature to manage multiple WordPress sites in one WordPress installation.

So you can run multiple WordPress websites with one physical installation. The websites can be operated either in sub-directories, with sub-domains or even with their own domains (domain mapping).

Advantages of a WordPress Multisite

The big advantage comes from centralized management and maintenance.

For example, if you run 5 very similar WordPress-based websites or blogs, you would need to update 5 standalone systems each, or log in when content changes.

In the multisite environment, all subwebs benefit from the same plugins and updates.

So you are completely free in terms of content and the websites do not have to look the same. However, if you update the plugin for a website or WordPress itself, this update is always directly available to all websites in the WordPress Multisite.

Advantages and disadvantages

What are the advantages and disadvantages of WordPress Multisite?


As mentioned above, it simplifies maintenance for multiple blogs / websites. There is only one file base, so only one file base and the same WordPress installation for all blogs / websites.

However, for each blog / website then exist separate database tables. With an update, all blogs can be updated at one go - no matter if only a plugin is updated or a new WordPress version is available. Furthermore, new / additional websites can be created very easily.

Depending on your needs, these websites can be reached via "subdirectories" or "subdomains".

So either about

  • domain.com/blog1,
  • domain.com/blog2,
  • domain.com/blog3

or else via

  • blog1.domain.com,
  • blog2.domain.com,
  • blog3.domain.com 

You also have the option to set up a separate domain for each website, but this only works via additional plugins in the blog network (Domain Mapping) and requires some technical tweaking to make the domains work properly.

Web Hosting & Server


There is actually only one small hurdle, because not all plugins work flawlessly with multisites, however, the number of those that do not is now rather small.

Furthermore, you should be aware that the effectiveness of a WordPress multisite decreases the more different the individual websites are. For example, if each site in the multisite uses completely different plugins and there is no common intersection, then in the end everything must be tested again individually and also the probability of compatibility problems can increase.

A technical basis for all websites has many advantages, but one notable disadvantage should not go unmentioned.

If there is a malfunction in the WordPress multisite system, all websites are usually affected. A failure would thus be global.

Due to the very good exception management in WordPress, fatal errors that lead to a real and complete failure are rather low.
